If you want ghosts you would want to get a few spirits from the local pub, after reading all the hype on the internet you would believe the devil lives there, sorry but you will be very disappointed, the so called business is run by John who is only in it for how many people you can get into his...

This is a very old inn, once frequented by the Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins. The day I visited there was no one hoe.

Ignore the hording. Ignore the supernatural goings on. Concentrate on the wonderful old man who invites you into his home. He shares the history of his life with you. He shares his philosophy with you. He shares his knowledge of a really remarkable ancient building with you. Then you get a personally conducted tour of the premises. Anyone visiting -... More

I believe the place may have been haunted in the past but nothing is happening here. Great to look around to explore the history but this is it. Would be great turned into a pub

I have known of the Ancient Ram for over 30 years and have been an occasional visitor throughout that period . The owner John Humphries is a 'character ' to say the least and has a wide range of interests from trains (he used to be an engine driver) and motorcycles . Bearing in mind that this is his 'home'...

Fantastic place with a lot of history, and John's stories are great. Claimed to be one of the most haunted places in England ! If your not a paranormal investigator it is well worth a visit, but be prepared for the quirky

We went with a paranormal group and had some great activity. Table levitation in the barn, the Ouija board was very active as well as the k2 meters and white noise spirit box. Did meet John but felt like the Inn had so much more to offer, far too much hoarding prevented us going into some areas/rooms. Overal I did... More

Know what you're getting into before going here. The history of the Ancient Ram Inn, is no doubt, fascinating. We saw John sitting outside and I went over to chat with him. He offered to take us through the house and told us about the history and the reputation for being one of the most haunted places in England. Well,... More
